+[fill in # here] for Oasis. Easy to get to from any direction; many, many amenities; easy check-in and the front desk is open 24 hours!... For some others, the sites are "a little tight," but if you're a champ at backing, nada problem! Once settled in, hop in the toad, hang a right on Windmill coming out of the park, left on Las Vegas Boulevard/The Strip and you're at the "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign in minutes... Right next to the airport. The "big" casinos are just a bit further down/North on this road.

I'm not a gambler, per se. Sally is, but she can find Nirvana with a slot machine which are ALL OVER Vegas; even restaurants and 7-Elevens! Me: I'm a shopper! Give me retail therapy over one-armed bandits any day! That said, going north on LVB, just north of I-215, on the left and south of Sunset Rd., is Town Square Las Vegas! Apple Store, Abercrombie [I take my fat self in there and buy something just to piss off that nipped/tucked CEO, Michael Jeffries], Fry's Electronics [way better, IMHO, than Best Buy], Aeropostle, Old Navy, etc. Ah! I can American Express myself into a stupor here! Knock yourself OUT!

This is our go-to campground/resort on our way to Burning man [not making it this year, though ], stay at least three days and we leave EARLY — like 5:00! — in the morning to make it to Fernley before dark. Our sustenance at that hour of the morning is Steiner's: A Las Vegas Pub; just south of Windmill on LVB... Might behoove you to "make the block" and enter from the south as there is no left turn from LVB and hanging-a-U in a larger rig might be difficult... if not impossible. Check your GoogleMaps. Steiner's is open 24 hours and has an incredible breakfast! I drive us over there at about 4:00-4:30-ish; Sally eventually wakes up and joins me in the establishment... Oftentimes, she'll sit at the bar after eating and get one last slots fix before we head out to the hinterlands... At the the slot machines built into the bar!!! This place has just EVERYTHING!

OK... I've rambled on about this long enough. Just sorta got wound up and couldn't stop. Enjoy your trip!

To each his own, we stayed at the Oasis for a rally and were not impressed. The spaces they assigned us were barely long enough for our 36' 5th wheel and truck parking sideways. The others that had bigger 5'rs had to park their trucks elsewhere and the security guards were snitty with them. We've stayed at the Las Vegas RV Park and thought it was fine. There are many parks out on Boulder Highway, we would never stay at the KOA, formerly Sam's Town.

Our site at the Oasis gave us plenty of room for our 40' rig and truck.

Lived in Vegas for 30 years. The Oasis already mentioned is the most convenient. It is minutes away from the South end of the strip and you can jump on 15 and get to any other area of the strip without driving down the strip which can be a nightmare on weekends. While I never stayed at the property I have driven through it and while it may not be the fanciest it is better than many I have stayed in. Don't leave too much money behind.

Another option, Arizona Charlie's. Long sites, good wifi, 50amp and reasonable prices. Close to the center of the strip (15 min at most). Stay there frequently and for the money it is excellent and more centrally located.

Ditto on the Oasis and LV RV resort, both are pricy. But, as one person said,, you get what you pay for. Both are close to the strip, with the Oasis being the closest. Enjoy and safe travels..

Military? If so, Nellis AFB is about 20 mins away from the strip and they have a nice RV resort.

Well thanks for all the replies. I ended up booking at the Oasis, and here's why.
After reading all you guys suggestions, I not only called the park, but also had my cousin, whose a cabby in Vegas and lived there his entire life, go over there and check it out for me. He assured me that it was by far way better then staying anywhere on Boulder Hwy. which he refers to as a zombie strip. He informed me that the Boulder strip is full of druggies, dealers and prostitution, and would not be a very safe place to stay.
He also lives near the Oasis RV park and said it is a very safe area and that the park looked very well maintained. So I will be there Mid September.
Thanks again for all the help

Safe travels everyone!

Mark

Well, I'll have to take exception to your cabby cousins description of Boulder as a Zombie Strip. The area is not as fancy as the strip (also loaded with hookers, etc.) but I've never felt unsafe at my stays at Az Charlies, Sam's Town, or the TTN campground.

Uh...Oh,
I hope I didn't ruffle anyone's feathers by talking about locations. Sorry if it came out wrong. I wasn't referring to the RV parks on Boulder Highway, just the location (area)as described by my cousin. He feels the Oasis is in a location with better surroundings.

Sam's Town reviews since KOA took over.

Has anyone stayed at Sam's Town since KOA took it over? We have not gotten a toad yet and we like the idea of a shuttle to the strip. We just upgraded from a 19' Hi-Lo to at Hurricane 27K and stayed at several KOA's in the TT and they were always nice parks. We plan to spend Thanksgiving in Vegas. Thank you for the reviews guys and gals.

We use to stay there frequently but since the KOA takeover we've chosen to take our business to Arizona Charlie's. The only reason is the cost of the park. For the same or fewer dollars you get free wifi and 50 amp. We've driven through the KOA several times and it looks just the same, so I assume that it is just as good as it was.
